Which companies have run the Channel 3 services in the Crystal Palace transmitter area
I am on the Wooburn Green transmitter in Bucks, since the recent retune I am having problems receiving channels on PSB2 (ch 56). All 3 channels (48, 56, 52) show good signal strengths on TV and PVR boxes (90 - 100%j with good signal quality 100%, except PSB 2 where the signal quality swings all over the place regularly to 0%.
Any ideas to rectify the issue, there have been no changes to my aerial/install and the problem originated at the time of the retune, with no issues prior to that receiving all three Wooburn channels/mux.
Loft mounted aerial, pvrs and TVs all reset.

Andy: PSB2 moved temporarily to UHF channel 36 on 21st March, but will be moving again on 18th April along with PSB1 and PSB3 (new UHF channel allocations for Wooburn will be 41/44/47) according to Digital UK. If you continue to have the same problem after retuning on the 18th you may need a new aerial, which should be available free of charge via the Freeview Advice Line (see link below) if you don't have satellite or cable.

Further to that said by StevensOnln1, having signal strengths as high as 90% or more is cause for concern as it is too high. Note that this refers to signal strength and not signal quality. Many TVs and PVRs do not respond well to such a strong signal and display the effect your describe. So you may need to try reducing the signal strength, the ideal is between 60% and 85%.
So firstly check all your aerial cables and plugs to ensure they are in good condition and clean. Then, if the signal strengths are still so high, obtain some coaxial attenuators, they are available in different 'strengths', and tray the lowest numbered one first. Use an additional fly lead so they are two between the wall socket and the TV. Then insert the attenuator in that lead so that the weight of it does not 'hang' on the aerial sockets. Then check the strengths again. If needed, swap the attenuator for the next higher numbered one until the strengths are all below 85%..
